Former "World's Strongest Man", Mariusz Pudzianowski is set to return against James Thompson at KSW 16 this May 21st at the Ergo Arena in Poland. James Thompson commented on meeting Pudzianowski for the first time with Konfrontacja.com:
"I knew (Mariusz Pudzianowski) was a big yoked guy. When I saw him on TV, he looked different."
"He looks uglier than I thought. I’d say he’s even hideous… He must’ve fallen on his face when he was young quite a few times."
"I want it to be a great fight for the fans. I want to win so I can come back (to Poland). I don’t have any special game plan. I will put on a show and have my hand raised at the end."
